Miley Cyrus is the queen of emotional live performances, and her time on stage at the 2019 MTV VMAs was no different. On Monday night, the 26-year-old singer performed her newly released single “Slide Away” live for the first time ever, and it was every bit as poignant as expected.
The singer hit the stage in a black dress and sang the heart-wrenching song, which seemingly addresses her recent split from actor Liam Hemsworth. Hemsworth and Cyrus dated on and off for 10 years before marrying in December 2018. However, in August, Hemsworth filed for divorce after seven months of marriage, citing “irreconcilable differences.”
Watch her powerful performance ahead.
